    In January, renowned Mikuni Restaurant chef Taro Arai enthusiastically presented a check for $50,000 to Sutter Medical Center Foundation to support Sutter Cancer Center’s Breast Cancer Navigator program, which offers essential education and support to newly diagnosed patients. The funds were raised at the Mikuni Restaurant Group foundation’s annual Summer Classic golf tournament.

    Mikuni is a long-time supporter of Sutter Health and has contributed golf tournament proceeds to Sutter cancer programs in the past. “We are grateful for the longstanding commitment Mikuni has made to Sutter Health through philanthropy,” said Gregory Walaitis, executive director of Sutter Medical Center Foundation. “Their support has truly helped enhance and grow our cancer programs.”
